Juventus Interested In Signing Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk In January

Juventus want Liverpool target Virgil van Dijk, according to the Sunday Mirror.

The Italian Champions are plotting a January move for the Southampton star.

Virgil van Dijk handed in a transfer request in an effort to engineer an exit from St Mary’s.

Saints held firm, despite Liverpool and Chelsea both expressing a serious interest in the player.

Liverpool were accused of allegedly ‘tapping up’ the Dutchman, and Klopp made a concerted effort to bring the defender to Anfield.

Van Dijk now hopes that his wish to leave will be granted when the transfer window reopens in January.

That has prompted interest from Italian giants Juve, who are still searching for Leonardo Bonucci’s replacement after their shock decision to let him join Serie A rivals AC Milan.

Juve will ask Southampton if a deal can be done to take Van Dijk to Turin at the turn of the year.
